8/19/01 all things considered

...well, I know everyone is eager for an update on Mikey, but I am reluctant to post up any more "unconfirmed" posts on the subject, and would prefer to post "solid" reports once the info is known...which at the moment, isn't. In the meantime, I have learned that the guys have chosen a fill in bass player, one Scott Shriner. When more is known regarding Mikey's situation and info on Scott and the overall situation, it will be here.

...October has been slated for a European Tour, which should include the UK make-up dates for the shows cancelled in July. Apparently some of these shows have somehow already gone on sale, which is definately odd, as I was just recently informed that the tour is still in the planning stage and that the shows will be confirmed shortly...While I can't actually confirm those dates that are on sale already, I can say that they do match the planned shows I've seen for those dates, so for those of you who have taken a chance and gone ahead and bought tickets, well, I am almost positive you did the right thing. When the full tour is prepared, and the confirmations are in, the dates will go up on our tour page. This should be very soon...

...now here's some shots from rehearsal last week, including a worksheet of 18 of the 23 new songs they've been working on!

...we await an edit of the new "Island" video from Spike, which was shot last Wednesday. I'm not sure when to expect it, but I imagine we'll be able to check it out later this week...Once its approved, it should be on its way to music TV stations...on a personal note, after the shoot I flew home to attend some family stuff and promptly caught a huge cold. Bah!

...me and Phoebe-dog, (who assures me she did not give me the cold)...

...ah yes, If you can handle picking up the latest Rolling Stone (Britney cover!), youll be treated to a 3 page weezer article inside.
